Of women, and of women's hopes we sing:
of sharing in creation's nurturing,
of bearing and of birthing new belief,
of passion for the promises of life.
We praise the God whose image is our own,
the mystery within our flesh and bone,
the woman-spirit moving through all time
in prophecy, Magnificat and dream.
We labor for the commonwealth of God,
and equal as disciples, walk the road,
in work and status, asking what is just,
for sisters of the family of Christ.
Forgiving what is past, we seek the new:
a finer justice, and a peace more true,
the promise of empowering for our day
when men and women roll the stone away.
